Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “The stunning Antalya region is becoming more and more popular with all types of customer, from families and couples through to golfers.
“Holidaymakers can enjoy beaches, culture, waterparks and incredible cuisine for amazing value and the wide selection of world-class courses, complemented by stunning hotels, makes Antalya a golfing paradise too.
“When you factor in the glorious sunny weather on top of that, Antalya in March is a very attractive proposition which is why we are increasing capacity in response to demand.
“We haven’t stopped there either, as golfers can also take their favourite clubs with them for just £1 thanks to our new golf carriage promotion.”
